The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice, C4, 8pm
MANY were gutted when Imelda was shown the exit in episode one of the new run. She’d barely been given a chance to show what she was made of when judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood decided she’d reached the end of the floury road. However, for Gallic baker Manon, who’d never had a Wagon Wheel (one of the challenges), she proved to be magnifique enough to win star baker.

Gardeners’ World, BBC2, 8pm
MONTY Don makes plans for a colourful spring by planting bulbs and nectar-rich wildflowers for an early and welcome feast for insects. Frances Tophill travels to a Birmingham allotment to meet an enthusiast who has filled his plot with dahlias, which he grows for competitions, and Nick Bailey is at Powis Castle in Wales to find out what it takes to trim their centuries-old, 14-metre-tall yew hedges. Adam Frost visits Sezincote Garden in Gloucestershire to find out about its history and Toby Buckland takes a look at a garden in Cheshire where different sections have been designed with small gardens in mind.

Britain by Bike with Larry and George Lamb, C5, 8pm
THE father-and-son duo visit Northern Ireland, circumnavigating Strangford Lough and trying to spot seals en route. George then explores a popular mountain-biking location while Larry indulges in his passion for oysters, crossing the border to Carlingford to help out at an oyster factory. The pair also meet a leprechaun hunter to chance their luck in finding the mythical creatures before heading to Northern Ireland’s oldest thatched pub, the Crosskeys in Ardnaglass, Co Antrim, where they receive a lesson in how to play the bodhran drum.

Front Row Late, BBC2, 11.35pm
THE nocturnal arts slot has gone through many incarnations over the years, from the Late Review in the 1990s, when the likes of Mark Lawson and Tom Paulin used to assess films, books and plays, to this offering. Previous series have featured reports on the Turner Prize, Michael Fassbender and Blade Runner 2049. Following her stint as host earlier in the year, Mary Beard is back with the topical cultural debate programme.
